Super Bowl Alternative

Not being a big fan of Super Bowl, I met a friend and went to the Gold Exhibit in the American Museum of Natural History. It was terrific. Aside from seeing some really nice jewelry and other gold pieces, we learned a lot of the background material that one never thinks about when perusing the showcases of Tiffany's and other like stores. We even met a really great designer from Norway who is in NY researching the possibility of expanding into the American market.

Although this exhibit is not cheap, it definitely is a great way to spend a cold winter day. The C train even stops inside the building so if you don't want to brave the cold you don't have to.

We were going to hit the museum cafe for lunch but it was way too crowded. We went to Patsy's for pizza, salad, and drinks instead. Being Superbowl Sunday, there was no wait to get in.

After culture and food, we braved the cold and walked down to 53 St to catch the train. All in all, a great day. Now, to write the lessons I should have worked on all weekend.

OMG! I saw your headline: "Superbowl Alternative." And then I saw the photo--it looked like a pile of barf! That would have been a fitting alternative to the Superbowl, IMHO.
